Alumni

Maulana Azad College, previously called Islamia College, was established in 1926. Though it is a prime institution of Eastern India, unfortunately all efforts, in the past, to form an Alumni Association proved ephemeral due to various reasons. However, in the year 2010 the dream of establishing the Maulana Azad College Alumni Association Kolkata (MACAAK) came true due to the sincere endeavours made by its ex-students.
The first meeting of the Ex-Students of the College was held on 24 th April 2010 under the chairmanship of Prof. Subhasis Datta, the then Principal of Maulana Azad College with a view to establishing an Alumni Association. The prominent ex-students, who took special interest and spearheaded this noble cause, comprised Mr. Md. Shamim (Retd. IPS), Mr. Jawaid Iqbal (Ex-WBCS), Mr. Anis Akhter, Dr. Gholam Sarwar, Dr. Md. Mansoor Alam, Dr. Tanwir Ahmed, Mr. Jameel Ahmed, Mr. Nishat Alam, Mr. Mozammil Hossain, Mr. Tanwir Ahmed Khan etc.

In the very first meeting it was resolved that the Memorandum of Association of the Alumni Association i.e. Maulana Azad College Alumni Association Kolkata be drafted and membership drive be given impetus to garner the support of ex-students. On 8 th May 2010 a working committee of the Association was formed and in the meeting held on 19 th June, 2010 the Memorandum of Association was approved. In the same meeting, the Executive Committee of the Association was formed as per the approved Memorandum of Association.

In a meeting dated 19.06. 2010, it was resolved that the MACAAK be registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act 1961 at the earliest. Prof. Gholam Sarwar, the General Secretary along with Mr. Jaweed Yusuf, Mr. Mozammil Hossain and Mr. Tanwir Ahmed Khan worked hard for the registration and eventually got the association registered with effect from 19.01.2011 vide Regn. No.S/1L/77219.

As per the resolution dated 19.11.2011 the Foundation Day of the Maulana Azad College was organised by the Alumni Association in a befitting manner at Wahshat Hall of the College. A large number of Ex-students attended this function and showed their interest in the activities of the Association. The function was presided by Mr. M. Nizam and Mr. Ghaznaffar Ali Khan (Retd.

Secretary of Muslim Institute, Prof. Naim Anis, Mr. Irshad Arzoo deserve to be mentioned. The function was a grand success. .
